Riassunto: Pia Toya, or big mountain, is a Goshute legend that describes how the hawk Kinniih-Pia punished the coyote Isapai-ppeh for his trickery, and in the process created the Deep Creek Range. The Deep Creeks are among the most rugged of Utah's many mountain ranges and include Ibapah Peak, with an elevation of 12,089 feet. Located in Utah's west desert near the state border with Nevada, the Deep Creeks are still isolated and little known. Yet they are part of the traditional homelands of the Goshute Indians, whose reservation and tribal headquarters nestle in Ibapah Valley at the foot of the range. The children of Ibapah Elementary School have chosen this illustrated retelling of Pia Toya as a way to honor their heritage. Their luminous paintings, drawings, collages, and border art bring color, light, and life to a traditional creation myth. Their commitment to their culture moved Utah Governor Michael Leavitt to declare November as American Indian History Month and November 22 as Indigenous People's Day in Utah. Included in Pia Toya is a cultural information section about the Goshute Indians, their history, and their lifeways. This beautiful book will be read and enjoyed often, treasured both by children and adults who wish to deepen their understanding and appreciation of a rich indigenous culture.
L'autore: The artwork in Pia Toya was created by the children and teachers of Ibapah Elementary, specifically the 1995-96 classes of teachers John Thomas and Marilyn Linares, with the assistance of education specialist Tamara H. Zollinger.
